An intriguing facade to this writer's studio in London by Beasley Dickson Architects which replaced a disintegrating summer house at the end of an overgrown back garden. Here's what they say about it:
"The client’s brief was for contemporary space with a cabin-like quality. The brief evolved to embody a series of elemental additions: a plinth, roof, screens and hearth alongside existing structural steels and joists that were exposed."
So the more unusual features include a stone plinth with sunken plunge pool and reflecting pond, a large triangular sliding rooflight, and various slatted timber screens which can rotate 90 degrees to stop it getting too sunny. Additionally there is a kitchen and lavatory which are cunningly hidden using timber cladding, plus an outside shower, and oak floorboards, plus hot rolled stell cabinetry.
